Fanart: Cave Story by Risachantag Fanart: Cave Story by Risachantag
I have a rule that goes, if I really, really thoroughly enjoy a game, then I draw a piece of fanart for it that expresses what I liked so much about it.

I'm not sure that many of you will have played Cave Story, but I am sure that you should.

It's a free platformer game that was made entirely (art, programming, music, the lot) by one guy, who then put it on the web for free. It's old school style, with fun gameplay, interesting characters and a story that is surprisingly deep.

And you can have a puppy on your head. <3

Time: ~10 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Thinkpad tablet laptop & Wacom Intuous tablet

Cave story can easily stand on its own merits, but it's the fans of the game that really make it shine. It's simply astonishing and I'm sure it's stuff like this that makes Pixel proud. Well done.

I looked at your pics, and i think you may be more focused on the end product than the process. Try to stop worrying about how its going to look and just have fun putting your pencil against paper (or stylus against tablet, whichever you prefer). just relax, stay focused, don't worry about anything.
